In this paper an attempt has been made to study the heat wave /cold wave and hot /cold days for Bihar region during 46 years of data (1969-2014). The representative months have been taken from December to February and March to June for cold wave/ cold days and hot wave /hot days respectively. The results obtained from decade analysis shows that the frequency of the hot wave /hot days increased during the last decade (2005 to 2014) almost for all the stations of Bihar region. In the similar manner the frequency of the cold wave /cold days also increases during last two decades (1995 to 2004 and 2005 to 2014) over the region. The gaps in the data of part time observatories have not been taken into account in the final decision.
